"LAURIE METCALF is SUPERB in a performance of INTENSE HUMANITY. The mystery of her character keeps acquiring new layers, and she brings an intensity and precision that TRANSFIXES. THE OTHER PLACE is POTENTLY ACTED, CUNNINGLY CONSTRUCTED and NIMBLY DIRECTED by JOE MANTELLO. DANIEL STERN and ZOE PERRY are EXCELLENT. It would be unfair to describe the final transformation, but you can rest assured it is entirely convincing, and PRETTY CLOSE TO HEARTBREAKING."
- The New York Times
"EXQUISITE and PIERCING. LAURIE METCALF is passing between dimensions right before our eyes, and daring us to keep up. Her performance is a great ringing cry from the darkness, suitable for an amphitheater. And ZOE PERRY is SUPERB in this haunting psychological drama by SHARR WHITE."
- New York Magazine
"A show that’s hard to get out of your head. LAURIE METCALF makes every one of these 70 minutes SPARK and CRACKLE. SHARR WHITE cannily jigsaws together details until they form a full picture, complete with a TOUCHING EMOTIONAL KICK. JOE MANTELLO’s bracing production unfolds seamlessly. DANIEL STERN and JOHN SCHIAPPA are TOP-NOTCH."
- Daily News
"THE OTHER PLACE is DESTINATION THEATRE! AN EXCEPTIONAL CAST, HIGH DRAMA and a GRIPPINGLY INTENSE PRODUCTION have made MTC the PLACE TO BE."
"BREATHTAKING, CRACKLING THEATER with REAL EMOTIONAL HEFT. LAURIE METCALF is MESMERIZING."
"A STUNNING PIECE OF THEATRE with a SEARING, BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE by LAURIE METCALF. Seeing METCALF and ZOE PERRY onstage together as mother and daughter is one of those beautiful things that come around too infrequently. The two are in real life mother and daughter, and PERRY is EVERY BIT AS WONDERFUL AS HER MOM."
"LAURIE METCALF is among our most intense stage presences. When her anguish hits full force, it’s like a punch in the gut."
- New York Post
"At MTC’s Broadway venue, THE OTHER PLACE is reaching the broad audience the drama deserves. I DARE YOU TO TAKE YOUR EYES OF LAURIE METCALF. She’s MAGNIFICENT in this TIGHTLY SWIRLING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER by SHARR WHITE, directed with UNFLINCHING STEALTH by JOE MANTELLO and BEAUTIFULLY PLAYED by DANIEL STERN with a dignity that shreds into heartbreak."
"A MUST-SEE DRAMA. METCALF is EXTRAORDINARY in ONE OF THE SEASON’S GREATEST PERFORMANCES. DANIEL STERN is DEVASTATING and ZOE PERRY is SIMPLY STUNNING."
"COMPELLING and INTELLIGENT. It’s a RARE PLEASURE to see DANIEL STERN on a New York stage, and LAURIE METCALF is MESMERIZING in a SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE. By turns proud, defensive, cruelly cutting and utterly helpless, she pushes us away only to yank us back with shattering self-exposure. THIS IS FEARLESS ACTING."
